Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Each safari provides a real wildlife viewing and conservation experience. By opting for a safari with us safari guests are already helping to contribute towards our conservation work. Profits from your safari go to support local projects. Our local team of wildlife conservationists are actively involved in wildlife and environmental conservation projects within the areas we visit.

In addition guests are afforded the opportunity to gain an insight into real conservation work if they wish, either by observing our work or assisting our rangers camera trapping in the forests and monitoring wildlife movement in support of local authorities. In this way we hope guests will help to spread the message of what real wildlife conservation is and what the needs are. We encourage our guests to bring their own reusable water bottles on this trip and can provide metal water bottles on request by post, pre-departure.

Our local guides adhere to responsible practices especially in ensuring that we leave nothing behind. Everything we take into the wilderness areas is brought out and we only choose approved pathways and tracks so as to minimise the effects of boots on the ground i.e. not to go off track and create fresh tracks that can in the long term create erosion issues especially on mountain trails.

As with all of our safaris, game viewing is conducted in a responsible manner, maintaining a respectful distance from wildlife i.e. not affecting their behaviour due to our presence.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

While on safari we recommend that visitors buy locally produced goods and support local artisans. In this way, visitors are able to help sustain the local community, contribute towards conservation and enrich their own lives.

Safari staff are all recruited locally and encouraged to develop within the organisation.

Along with offering amazing sightings or wildlife, the equal first purpose of this safari is to establish tourism and a force for good in conserving the Bear population and in that support local conservation initiatives. Details of these projects will be included in daily conversations and briefings. In the local area there have historically been human conflict issues with wildlife, however through tourism we are ensuring that wildlife is seen locally as a good and fair revenue source and support local communities and rural projects.

Time permitting guests will be invited to meet with local people and conservation professionals to discover more about their work and are able to offer further support at a grass roots level as they prefer.

Our lodges source the majority of food from the local area and when that isn't possible as near as feasible. Our staff and guides are resident in the area eliminating the need for domestic or international flights or road transfers.
